MDK Field Guide No. 21: Brioche
We welcome with joy the world’s foremost expert on brioche knitting, Nancy Marchant! Field Guide No. 21: Brioche is perfect for knitters new to brioche, with how-to instructions, tips, and four patterns that set a knitter up for brioche glory. Experienced brioche knitters will love these designs, too—modern and simple, hitting that the sweet spot of easy and gorgeous.
This is the Field Guide we have dreamed of creating for a long time.
We were total brioche newbies when we started working with Nancy on this Field Guide. Now, with Nancy’s guidance and a set of gorgeous designs, we’re confident brioche knitters.
Cushiest Cowl: Elemental, graphic, superfun. This is where we start. Two lengths, short or long.
Honeycomb Scarf: Broken-rib brioche is one of the most beautiful fabrics we know. With two gradient yarns, it becomes a sophisticated swath of color.
Cocoon Top: Nancy’s endless inventiveness gives us this snuggly layering piece—two-color brioche melded with a stitch pattern that adds graphic interest.
Dotty Wrist Warmers: Colorful snack-sized brioche. Includes a set of stitch patterns for varying the look here and also on the Cushiest Cowl.
